Cezanne in the Barnes Foundation

ISBN: 9780847864881 (HB+ - E)

The Barnes Foundation's holdings of works by the renowned Post-Impressionist Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) 61 oils on canvas and 8 works on paper are among the most significant in the world. The Barnes Foundation was established in 1922 by scientist, entrepreneur, and educator Dr. Albert C. Barnes, a passionate supporter of European modernism. His virtually unrivalled collection, which can only be viewed at the Barnes Foundation, also includes exceptional paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and many others. Beginning in 1912, Barnes acquired works by Cezanne from major Paris dealers such as Paul Durand-Ruel and soon ranked among the artist's most prominent collectors. At the time, this expressed a pioneering taste that Barnes shared with only a small group of enthusiasts, even though Cezanne had been posthumously hailed as a father of modern art at the turn of the 20th century. The Foundation's impressive holdings of Cezannes never before published in a single study in their entirety span every period of the artist's career and include his largest rendition of The Card Players and one of the three versions of The Large Bathers, one of his signal testaments. This landmark volume is both a work on Cezanne and his time, and an impetus for further study of an artist whose oeuvre is at once luminous, austere, challenging, and deeply confounding.
